Jaw development is at fifty percent when a baby is born, and will develop to eighty percent in the following six years.
Kids dentist Aurora agree that breast feeding from the outset is a positive for proper jaw development. Thumb, or finger sucking, and the use of pacifiers, can actually affect how the jaw takes shape. Sucking should be discouraged after the age of four, to encourage proper alignment and jaw development.
Kids dentist Aurora realize that orthodontic treatment may be necessary to correct the effects of some bad habits.
